Soil Capacity for Septic Tank-Weeping Field Systems Soil capacity analysis can have a range of potential applications. For example, a soil capacity analysis can be used to determine where Septic tank systems can be located. The analysis can show which areas are good for septic tank installation and which would be poorly suited for this purpose. In the case of Renfrew County we have been given a map and a number of tables(Map 1 and Tables 1 and 2). From these sources we can see that the largest area is composed of MSL-R soils. An analysis of this type of soil indicates that it is only a fair area for septic tank placement. Overall MSL-R is too shallow, stony and sloped to be good for septic tank placement. Secondly, MSL soil is composed of...The end:
.....l was considered Good if it received a score between 13-18. It was considered Fair if it received a score between 7-12. A soil was considered Poor if it relieved a score under 6.
